Shot on location amid the gorgeous backdrops of New Zealand's southern Alps, the mighty Sierras of Lake Tahoe, oceanside on Cape Cod and the California coasts, Stolen Good is a spectacularly beautiful movie filled with the non-stop action of screeching stolen cars, helicopter riding at 12,000 feet and amazing stunt work of professional snowboarders performed by the lead actors themselves. The director, Russ Jaquith, has lived the snowboarder lifestyle, photographed six films around the globe and captured the authentic lives of professional snowboarders. This film shares all of it: the danger, the adrenaline, the pursuit of pro rider glory and the consequences. Written by Russ Jaquith

Did You Know?


The owner of the Buick Skylark convertible was Bailey Smith, who plays the bouncer in the bar scene. He also stunt drives the car in the film during the burnout and fish tail scenes. At the time, he was restoring the convertible, and it was shot in various states to correspond with Ryker restoring the car in the film. The car engine was blown during the the burnout scenes, which had to be filmed a second time for audio recording, as the gear was not there on the first session and was shot MOS. The second time overburdened the motor and it had to be replaced. See more »

Impressive first indie film
11 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I happened to attend the premier of this movie in New Hampshire (USA).

There are a few moments with "quiet" audio, and one or two darkly exposed segments. Other than that, the film story is compelling and honest, and shows the good and bad sides of snowboarding.

What is interesting, too, is the underlying story of how the snowboarding industry can, at times, chew young kids up and spit them out.

The soundtrack is good, and much of the snowboarding riding is simply breathtaking (they must have used a helicopter in parts). I haven't seen snowboard footage like this in any other film. Better than the Hollywood big production cheesy "snow films" (remember "Hot Dog", anyone? 8-) this film shows a truer side of snowboarding and the lives of the riders who are living it.

Why a 10? Well, for one, given the very limited budget (I can't remember what the director said exactly, but it was definitely under $500,000 (!)) it's probably the best film I've seen for so cheap. Secondly, the first reviewer seemed a bit harsh -- claiming "worst film ever" but hadn't even bothered to watch it all. Thus, I think some "karmic equalization" is in order.

If you want to see some great snowboarding, a Little Indie Film That Could, and get a direct view of the "secret lives of snowboarders", then I think you'll enjoy this film!
